Last we heard on the Venom movie front, Andrew Garfield was still the defacto Spider-Man, Spider-Man had not shown up in the Marvel cinematic universe, and Sony had not learned it was more lucrative to play nice with Marvel than hold their red and blue tights close to their chests.
Boy, how quickly things change (not so much–it’s a very slow process). We now know that Tom Hardy will play Venom in a film unrelated to the Amazing Spider-Man flicks, in a Sony film partnered with Marvel. And, thank Deadpool, it’ll be “kind of an anti-hero” thing.
More on the Venom front when more is widely known, but based off the casting alone, are excited?
